Downdraft Cooker Hoods
See down below for our most frequently asked questions about downdraft cooker hoods.
How do downdraft cooker hoods work?
Downdraft hoods work by drawing back steam and smells horizontally across the top of pots and pans on the hob. These are different to overhead cooker hoods as they suck in the dirty air directly from the source i.e your pots and pans. They do not allow the air to rise in the room like an overhead cooker hood.
How good are downdraft cooker hoods?
Downdraft cooker hoods are largely an effective ventilation solution for your kitchen. However, they do have to work a little bit harder to make the air and steam go in the opposite direction. So, their extraction rates do tend to be a little bit lower, despite having 80-90% of the same power.
Where do downdraft extractors vent to?
Usually, downdraft cooker hoods are recirculated, but they can be vented outside. To vent one of these extractors outside, you would have to go through the floor, creating additional costs for the installation.
How much space do you need for a downdraft extractor?
The amount of space needed for a downdraft extractor does vary depending on which model you have purchased. However, a universal amount of space to leave behind your unit is 300mm, which will cover most sized downdraft extractors.
